Comprehensive Racing is both a multisport and cycling team, based on the North Shore of MA. We also offer beginner and intermediate athletes training services and opportunities both locally and remotely to help them grow and meet their athletic goals.
With a background in fencing, skiing, windsurfing and mountain biking, I was convinced to do my first triathlon, a mid-week sprint distance race that took place locally in 2000. I was immediately hooked on the endurance aspect of the sport! And from there, the rest is history, with races of every distance from sprint to Ironman!
I have competed and trained athletes in all distances of triathlon from sprint to Ironman, have raced on the road for about 10 years, but my passion for dirt has never wavered. As a triathlete competing in Xterra races, mountain biking and cyclocross, that's where I'm most at home. Currently a Cat 2 XC mountain bike racer and a Cat 3 Master's cyclocross racer, you can usually recognize me by the dirty smile on my face at the end of every race. In addition to racing, I have actively managed and developed Comprehensive Racing, a multisport, running and cycling team, since 2001.
My love for coaching focuses on beginner and intermediate athletes and understanding the important of balance, between, life, sport and family. Being able to help an athlete achieve something they thought impossible, by optimizing training within their lifestyle, is always my main goal.
I hold a BS in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in Biomechanics from Boston University and am a USAC Certified Level 3 coach, hold an L1 Precision Nutrition certification (Pn1) and am USA Olympic Committee Safe Sport Certified.
